Fun to hear! I like the orchestra's version a bit more.

This reminds me of an old friend of mine, an elderly gent with a collection of cylinders and a cylinder player in his basement...he played one cylinder for me when I visited around 1970. He was also at one time a musician and disk jockey, and he appeared on the Garry Moore Show around 1960.

Regarding cylinders, I've been listened to a lot of digitised ones lately.

I wish though somebody would digitise the old Edison Diamond Discs. Same with a lot of other old recordings.

A few days I looked up Edison Records in a site which has digitised old newspapers. I came across ads in old newspapers for the Edison records. A 1927 ad mentions a recording of "Rhapsody in Blue" by The Edisonians. I'm listening to it right now on YouTube, but it doesn't seem to be available anywhere else (as if to prove how rare the recording is, nobody on last.fm has listened to any track by The Edisonians). It would be a shame if these recordings were to be left to become completely forgotten.

I had been on that site a couple years ago (for film clips) but had forgotten that they had an audio section. Thanks for the link.
